On 2nd June 2015 in Brussels, JPIAMR took part in the meeting ‘Societal Stakeholders in Joint Programming’ organised by the Joint Programming Initiative on More Years, Better Lives. The meeting discussed different ways of engaging stakeholders in the different societal challenges tackled by Joint Programming. Engaging stakeholders is crucial to make Joint Programming a success. Each JPI is organised slightly different, but stakeholder engagement to form a collaborative platform is at the core of each JPI.
